Guild Esports’ Danish Fortnite player Anas ‘Anas’ El-Abd and Tundra Esports’ UK Fortnite player Zachariah ‘Pinq’ Siddall won the tournament as a duo.

Pinq joined Tundra back in April 2022, when Tundra signed several UK talent including its first streamers and new Fortnite players, and Anas joined Guild in early 2021.

In third place was another UK-based esports organisation – Manchester City Esports – the gaming arm of English Premier League football club Manchester City.

Danish duo Jacob ‘Hellfire’ Hansen and Sebastian ‘Trippernn’ Kjaer finished second for Man City, taking home $150,000 between them.

Other UK players at the Gamers8 Zero Build Fortnite tournament included Bloomy (Lionscreed), Hen (Guild Esports) and Veno (Tundra Esports), who finished in 21st, 28th and 33rd place respectively.

The Gamers8 Fortnite Zero Build tournament took place at the Riyadh Boulevard in Saudi Arabia from July 28th and 29th 2022.

“Gamers8 ran it perfectly in my opinion. Saudi was so cool and I am grateful to get to experience these types of things.”

Guild Esports player Hen finished fifth with Serbian duo partner Queasy, while Tundra player Veno finished 12th with Austrian duo partner Aqua.

Tundra’s other player, Pinq, finished 17th with Guild’s Anas.
